Image Title: Sands of Mars
Source: Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity

A beautiful example of sand ripples on the surface of Mars.

Source Image Background

My picture was constructed from a number of images taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. The individual frames were all taken by Opportunity's Left Panoramic Camera with each frame being exposed using a different filter.

Image Processing

The multiple individual frames taken by Opportunity's Panoramic Camera were combined in Adobe Photoshop. All subsequent processing and manipulation was done using Photoshop.
